Usage specifics of the bpbkar_path_tr touch file to enable enhanced debug logging of the bpbkar process

Details:

On Windows clients, the following steps are used:

1. Create the \\<install_path>\NetBackup\logs\bpbkar directory. Generated log

information will be placed in this directory in a file named mmddyy.log (where mm = month, dd = date, yy = year).

2. Create an empty file called \\<install_path>\NetBackup\bpbkar_path_tr (ensure that

the file has no extension and is named as defined)

3. Enable logging for the desired system by setting the 'Global logging level' to 5

(maximum). This can be found in the Logging tab of the Host Properties | Clients | Properties section of the NetBackup Administration Console.

4. Restart the 'NetBackup Client Service' in the Control Panel Services applet (usually

contained within Administrative Tools)

5. Run a backup to generate the log information

On UNIX clients, the following steps are used:

1. Create the bpbkar debug log directory by running

mkdir /<install_path>/netbackup/logs/bpbkar. Generated log information will be placed in

this directory in a file named log.mmddyy (where mm = month, dd = date, yy = year).

2. Create a file named touch /<install_path>/netbackup/bpbkar_path_tr to enable

extended bpbkar debug logging

3. Enable logging for the desired system by setting the Global logging level to 5

(maximum). This can be found in the 'Logging' tab of the Host Properties | Clients | Properties section of the NetBackup Administration Console.

4. Run a backup to generate the log information

Note that the use of this "touch" file will cause radically larger bpbkar logs than the usual (even at a logging level of 5). Refer to the UNIX / Windows Troubleshooting Guide for more specifics on debug logs.
